Gene Rochler’s marriage came to an end Wednesday.

Well, one of his marriages did.

Married to baseball coaching — as well as his wife, Nancy — for 40 years, Rochler said his Mattituck High School team’s 11-1 loss to Center Moriches in the decisive second game of the Suffolk County Class B finals was his final game as a coach. READ

Bryce Grathwohl #1 of Mattituck winds up against Babylon at Mattituck High School in Mattituck on May 21st 2019.

The road to the Suffolk County Class B title has run squarely through two schools in recent years: Mattituck and Center Moriches.

Since 2014, the Tuckers have won three county titles; the Red Devils have won a pair. Now, the Red Devils are one win away from another crown. READ

It could be said that Center Moriches stole the Suffolk County Class B boys basketball championship.

Not that the Red Devils didn’t earn every bit of their 88-66 defeat of Mattituck Saturday, from every single one of Micah Snowden’s 34 points to every one of the 19 steals Center Moriches made to every one of the 28 turnovers it forced Mattituck into committing.

It was pilfery at its best. READ

That said more about host Center Moriches, though, than it did about Mattituck. READ

The pain of defeat was just too much for at least one inconsolable young person on the Mattituck side of the soccer field. Tuckers coach Will Hayes tried his best to comfort the distraught youngster, but the bawling continued.

It wasn’t one of Hayes’ players, but his 8-year-old son, Owen. Mattituck’s 4-1 loss to rival Center Moriches in a Suffolk County Class B semifinal Wednesday was just too much for him to take. READ

An emotional Senior Day is nothing new. What was unusual about the senior ceremony before the Greenport/Southold girls volleyball team’s final home match Friday, though, was the source of much of that emotion.

Greenport coach Mike Gunther has a hard outer shell, but he unexpectedly showed his softer side. READ
